There are a number of new gelato cafes opening up in Singapore in recent months that got me noticing, from Creamier (Tiong Bahru), aROMA gelato experience (Arab Street), Just Because Creamery (Jalan Legundi), Gelato Works (Alexandra Central), Sticks N’ Stones Creamery (Chua Chua Kang Ave 1), Hey Sugar (Chua Chu Kang Ave 1).
I am sure there are more hidden ones.
When every shop starts selling “handcrafted gelato and waffles” of similar flavours, then it can be hard to stand out from the competition. #justsaying
Just wondering, if the former shop with stronger personality didn’t work out in the end, then what would be the differentiating factor for this current place?
Over at Baby Moo Creamery, Ice Cream cost $3.50 per scoop, $6.00 for double, and $1.00 extra for premium flavours. Interesting flavours offered were Belgium Dark Chocolate, Sicilian Pistachio, Raspberry Mascarpone, Lychee Cream, Speculoo and Mao Shan Wang Durian Gelato made with real durian pulp.
Waffle offered included buttermilk, charcoal, chocolate and red velvet (all $6 each).
I had the Thai Milk Tea and Pandan-flavoured scoops. The gelato was moderately creamy and you would get nuances of both the Thai Milk Tea and Pandan.
However, compared to the more-known brands which are more velvety smooth, the mouthfeel lacked that extra oomph factor.
Baby Moo Creamery disclosed that it was looking at introducing Ice Cream Cake and Milkshakes. What it needs is probably more awareness, and products or flavours varied from the others.
